Evan Turner took some breathtaking photos with a drone.
Evan Turner’s Portland home was almost the site of a tragedy on Wednesday when a truck crashed into his pool.
Fortunately, the driver will be fine after being taken to a hospital with serious injuries. Photos taken from the ground were harrowing enough, but Turner posted more pictures on Friday from a different perspective. Bruce Ely, the Blazers’ team photographer, taught Turner how to fly a drone and they were able to capture the scene from high above.
There are only a few positive that you can take from a semi truck crashing into your pool: 1. The driver in the accident is going to survive! 2. I finally get to put insurance to use after paying for years and years not knowing if I’d ever need it. 3. My good buddy @bruceely taught me how to fly his drone so we can take cool pix! 4. this is the biggest one: EVERYONE SURVIVED, WE COULD’VE ALL BEEN DEAD BEFORE CHRISTMAS AND MISSED OUT ON ALL THE GIFTS!!! #godisgood

The driver was stuck inside the truck and Turner’s chef, Kenny James, held the man’s head above the water while they waited for a rescue crew. A friend staying with Turner said he felt like he woke up in a Bruce Willis movie.
